From its start in 2016 BTF has been very aware of the crucial importance of child protection and the safeguarding of children whose lives the organisation exists to support. BTF’s Programme Manager has been trained in child protection through a sector-recognised training programme with Save the Children. Child protection training courses were then passed on to every member of staff working at BTF schools, with whom we worked to build child protection policies and processes. Since then, there has been a massive building of awareness in the charity sector regarding this issue. BTF is a member of British Overseas NGO Development (BOND) and has recently attended their safeguarding workshops. BTF has an ongoing commitment to keep child protection at the core of its work, thereby keeping safe the children who are receiving the services delivered.
